Another Week, Another Weekly Post


Time to check in for my weekly recap of stitching for 15 minutes a day.  I did well this week, actually stitching every day, sometimes for more than 15 minutes. I stitched more rounds to the courthouse square blocks, aiming for the 8" size.

After watching the impeachment hearings, I am thinking about changing the name of the quilt to "Not as Outlandish as It Could Be."    Some of my centers start out as triangles instead of squares or rectangles, so they are even more wonky than the crooked blocks shown here.  If I am up to it, I might add some wonky lettering to this.


15 Minutes to Stitch: Week 46

This week,  I added more rounds of more Courthouse Steps. I had to steal some fabric from another container of scraps, mostly because I thought I was using the same scraps too many times. It's like clothes. When I was working on the lights, I thought I had plenty of scraps but didn't have enough lights, yet when I was working on the darks, I thought I had plenty of scraps but didn't have enough darks. I think I should organize the scraps again like I did last week. That worked out better.

You are so good and keeping yourself sewing. I don’t seem to be doing too much lately... rats!

Yes, scrap bins/boxes are like that -- they seem to have a huge variety but when you've pulled that particular blue print out for the fifth time you think about adding just a few pieces from here, and there, and maybe some bright purple would be good, and . . . so the scrap box never gets completely empty! (I really like the wonky courthouses, which are very apt for the impeachment hearings.)

Hmmm, I think I need to wander into some outlandish courthouses! Those look like fun and I think I have just the scraps to get started.

I smiled at your 'political' reference. =) Politics in your country is fascinating! As for your court house steps....they are fabulous. LOVE wonky!!

It has to feel good to use up those strips to make those very fun blocks. Congrats on a good stitchy week last week. Hope this one has been as good (Sorry for the very late reply, work has been a killer this week).
